Party of Five Binge

My husband and I were out at Menards home improvement store over the weekend and came across a steal (well, a steal in my opinion).  I have a love for several shows that aired when I was in my teens, the 90's and early 2000's.  Beverly Hills 90210, Dawson's Creek, Melrose Place, and Felicity are some favorites.  Also on that list was a show called Party of Five. Party of Five, the entire series on DVD, was on sale for $25!  Woot! 

Party of Five is where actresses Neve Campbell, Jennifer Love Hewitt, and Lacey Chabert got their real start. Also, big brother, Charlie, is played by Matthew Fox who went on to star in Lost and several other films and shows.   I've always related to Neve Campbell's character, Julia, from the show.  She was brown-haired, brown-eyed, bookish girl who frequently pushes the boundaries of lacking parental supervision day in and out.  She also gets into trouble with boys on occasion and eventually marries young.  I had a lot in common with her character back in the day.  I also went on to be huge Neve Campbell fan and loved all the Scream movies and especially loved The Craft.  I even watched all her B-rate stuff.  I'll even admit to loving the movie Wild Things which starred Matt Damon, Kevin Bacon and Denise Richards.  Oh why don't they make movies like Scream and The Craft anymore???


I'm now binge watching my way back through Party of Five... and now I watch it again and again.

For those that are curious, Menards had several full series shows for cheap.  Roseanna, Betwitched, Gilligan's Island, I Dream of Jeannie to name a few.  I'm always surprised by what I find in that store and this weekend was no exception.
